But, first today Sam and I went to Philly to visit Ikea and get shelves for our movie/Eagles room. We got 3 book cases for books and DVD’s. I can’t wait to put them together and organize the DVD’s in ABC order (I’m and little OCD about that). While at Ikea Sam reminded me that when we were watching Parking Wars in the background you could see Ikea. So I was on a mission to find it. As we drove in we looked all around and then got busy looking for a space to park, so no luck. As we were walking in I looked over to check for cars and BAM there it was! It was beautiful! If you have never seen Parking Wars it is a TV show about parking officers in Philly who write tickets, boot cars, and have them toed. This is what I do in the summer and I wish I could boot too. This show is AMAZING!


When we ate lunch Sam made sure I had a beautiful view of the PPA


No Lines, but lots of cars in the impound lot. I was in my glory!

Ikea was definitely worth the trip and just what I needed it got us out of the house, spent quality time with each other alone, and saw the PPA building. If you don’t know this is where all the pissed off people come to get there cars after they have been towed.


My First Giveaway!!!!

So about a week ago Caroline contacted me on behalf of Campbell’s Soup Company and offered me a sample of Campbell’s V8 Garden Vegtable Blend Soup and a sample for one of my readers too. This is one of the great things she had to say:

As you know, soup has long been touted as a great weight management tool; however, many low-calorie soups are not very satisfying. Anyway, I’d like to offer you a sample of Campbell’s V8 Garden Vegetable Blend Soup for you and one for your readers to help COUNT your servings of vegetables and COUNT your steps towards wellness!
